Enjoyable and informative.
Good to see hens loose in garden and interaction between dog (daughters dog) and hens.
It was a pleasure to meet Janet and her hens- it was a lovely, informative, and informal introduction to hen keeping. She provided us with tons of information, and we now feel able to make a more informed decision about whether or not hen keeping is for us. (She gave us some delicious cake too!)
Very informative and great to see chickens happily poddling around the garden, with cats accepting them as part of the family!
Janet was very friendly and happy to answer any questions about keeping hens. Having the chance to pick up the hens and understand their habits was an wonderful. I felt a lot more confident after the course and I am one step closer to keeping hens. Delicious cake and a cuppa over a Q&A to end the session. Really enjoyable.
Short: Great course, host and afternoon. Recommended for anyone thinking about keeping chickens.
Long: I have been thinking about getting chickens for a little while now, and random questions to other people about keeping chickens prompted a decision to 'go for it'. I stumbled on the Omlet site after researching plastic hen houses/coops, finding out about the course at the same time. A £15 outlay wasn't bad, so if I decided that keeping chickens wasn't for me, then I wouldn't be too much out of pocket. Even though it was just 90 minutes, I wondered how the time would be allocated. Janet gave us a practical lesson on the chickens, run and Eglu, with hands on experience of handling the chickens. The science-y(?) bit was conducted in the cosiness of the kitchen where a lovely cup of tea was drunk and some blinding cakes were eaten. Janet answered our questions with as much information that she could give, and there were an awful lot of questions from everyone. The course allayed any fears or doubts I may have had about keeping chickens, but we won't be getting any until August, until we have been on holiday.
All in all, a good day.
Very friendly, demonstrated the eglu and how to handle chickens really well.
Helpful and informative and well presented.
I enjoyed the afternoon. Janet was very informative. However many books you read there can be no substitute for the knowledge of an experienced chicken owner. I learnt a lot during the afternoon and delicious tea and cakes to finish.
I went with my partner Paul & His Mum, I just wanted to see the whole set up before I committed to order one. Janet was a great host and told us all about the Eglu, and some funny stories. We asked lots of questions I think there was about 6 or 7 of us. Janet made us very welcome and at the end we had tea & cakes. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I have now ordered an Eglu and can't wait for its arrival 1st week of July :-)
